Cham­pion for Youth­line en­cour­ag­ing vol­un­teers

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Brid­get McNa­mara will be among vol­un­teers rais­ing funds for Youth­line dur­ing Co­caCola Christ­mas in the Park at the Auck­land Do­main on De­cem­ber 13.

The 24-year-old was train­ing to as­sist with the or­gan­i­sa­tion’s Helpline ser­vice when a vacancy came up at Youth­line Auck­land Cen­tral in Pon­sonby.

It was too good an op­por­tu­nity to miss and she is now a youth de­vel­op­ment worker – as well as a vol­un­teer coun­sel­lor.

McNa­mara, who has just com­pleted her Masters De­gree, en­cour­ages oth­ers to vol­un­teer for the con­fi­den­tial, free and round-the-clock coun­selling ser­vice.

She’s also look­ing for help sell­ing Santa hats, glow sticks, and other good­ies dur­ing Co­caCola Christ­mas in the Park.
